Shannon Goins is a Certified Lymphedema Therapist (CLT) who relocated to Albuquerque in June 2018 from the greater Phoenix area. Originally from Little Rock Arkansas, Shannon has settled into the Albuquerque area and now considers it home.

She specializes in Plastic Surgery Recovery and frequently works on Tummy Tucks; BBL's; Liposuction; and Breast Augmentations, Lifts, and Reductions.  She also has experience working with Brachioplasty, Facelifts, Rhinoplasty, and various other cosmetic surgeries.

Shannon received her Certified Lymphedema Therapist (CLT) training from KLOSE Training, based out of the Boulder, Colorado area. Her Medical Massage and Myofascial Release specialty certifications were earned at the Southwest Institute for Healing Arts in Tempe, AZ.  Assisted Lymphatic Training was completed with RightWay Health & Wellness in Canton, Georgia.  CranioSacral Training has been obtained through the Southwest Institute for Healing Arts in Tempe, AZ and through Cranio Sacral School of the Masters in Tigers, New Mexico.

It was during her training and Medical Massage that she fell in love with Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) work. To that end, she pursued the respected CLT (Certified Lymphedema Therapist) certification to help people who suffer from lymphedema.  

In June of 2018 she became certified in Electro-Lymphatic Drainage (also called "Assisted Lymphatic Drainage") which uses a device called the XP2 that effectively releases stagnated lymph.

The CLT certification proved to be the ideal advanced training avenue because it built on the foundations of Oncology Massage, Breast Health Massage, and adaptive massage for various medical conditions that constituted the core of her medical massage training.

"Since becoming a Certified Lymphedema Therapist, I have learned that lymphatic drainage doesn't just apply to people with lymphedema. It can help people who have had surgery, who have Lyme disease, Alzheimer's, surgery, etc. It can also be used to enhance athletic performance and improve how we looking feel through draining a puffy face to providing a powerful detoxifying effect.  I welcome all clients who would like to experience Lymphatic Drainage regardless of the reason."

While Shannon works on many types of swelling, her practice in Albuquerque has attracted a great number of plastic surgery clients.  She regularly works on people who have had liposuction, BBL's, tummy tucks, breast augmentations / reductions and reconstruction to reduce their pain and swelling and speed their healing process.

"My main objective when working with clients, no matter what brings them to my office, is to have them leave feeling significantly better than when they walked in. Making a difference in the lives of others is the most rewarding thing that I can do."  - Shannon Goins

Shannon's training also includes PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) Therapy.  PEMF therapy is available at Pain & Swelling Solutions.

Certified Lymphedema Therapist

Completed 135 hour training for Lymphedema Therapy with KLOSE Training. This training included advanced Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) Techniques, bandaging, and garment fitting for both upper and lower body. The KLOSE CLT program also teaches in-depth anatomy and physiology of the lymphatic system, as well as thorough information regarding co-conditions (co-morbidities) such as Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI), diabetes, etc. to ensure that clients of therapists graduating from the program will be treated safely.

Certified Myofascial Release Therapist

Completed 100 hour certification training in Energetic Myofascial Release at Southwest Institute of Healing Arts.

Certified Medical Massage Therapist

Completed 100 hour certification program in Medical Massage at Southwest Institute of Healing Arts.

Certified Assisted Lymphatic Therapist

Assisted Lymphatic Therapy (ALT) utilizes a device that electronically excites three noble gasses contained in hand-blown glass wands. When placed on the skin, the device transmits ions that break up coagulated lymph proteins and change it from a jello-like state to more of a water-like state, thereby permitting it to flow freely in the lymphatic system. The procedure is painless and highly effective, especially in complex lymphatic cases.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Winsome on Oct 20
She's amazing !
by Amanda on Oct 12
Great experience! Shannon is so calm and professional. She explained everything so I could understand it and it is obvious that she really cares about her patients. If you are recovering from plastic surgery, she is the only person in town who actually knows how to help you. I had to quarantine after my surgery out of town and ended up going to a couple of other people who said they knew what to do after plastic surgery. They don't. She does. Don't waste your money on these other people. They won't help you. Shannon was such a help through my initial recovery and now we are tweaking some results with skin tightening. I can't recommend her strongly enough.

The professionalism and cleanliness se great but especially just how easy it is to talk to Sharon and also her expertise! I was comfortable and felt in good hands. I am recommending to everyone! It took me a while to find someone like her!

Shannon is very professional, patient and knowledgeable. She takes time explaining anything and everything I may have questions about. She has great resources for compression socks and others.

You guys!! Shannon is amazing!! I came here after my hip surgery and she was so kind and gentle with my recovery healing. She was beyond knowledge and made sure I as a client was knowledgeable about the services I was getting as well! I noticed huge improvements in my face complexion. My skin was glowing and my acne was more controlled. I overall just felt more renewed and energized to get my body’s circulation back up! I highly recommend her to anyone!! This is hands down the best lymphatic message Place here in ABQ. She also really helped educate me on products that I could also use to help heal scaring from surgical sites and the product would have also helped my husband with his Eczema. Shannon really is so kind and great company! She made me feel comfortable and cared for as I was getting my services!

Awesome results! I'm about half-way through a package of 12 body contouring sessions with Shannon. I had plastic surgery 6 months ago and didn't get the massages like I was supposed to. I guess that is why I was left with a lumpy appearance. The body contouring has made all the difference in the world. My stomach is flatter and tighter, and although I still have a little ways to go I am finally seeing the results that I wanted from my surgery!
by Test on Sep 05
Gentle and relaxing therapy! This was my second round of seeing Shannon. I first came after my plastic surgery a year ago. I was impressed with how gentle her work was (I fell asleep on the table every time - even after surgery!). And, she actually cared about me. She really went above and beyond - I had so much anxiety about my recovery. I had a few minor worrying issues after surgery, but she walked me through every last step of the recovery process. She was reassuring and right. My body looked so awful after surgery - I was scared. I trusted her and followed her advice about compression and self-massage. Now, being a year out with a great result and having had friends go through the same thing, I understand what she was trying to tell me. I came back to see her the other day for some skin tightening therapy. I had lipo last year, but I really should have had a tummy tuck. She now offers skin tightening therapies and I was anxious to try them. I'm going to do a total of 12 to get a really great effect, and while the visible change doesn't happen right away, I can already feel the difference after a single session. Albuquerque is so fortunate to have Shannon. **Highly recommend!!**

I felt pretty good after the first treatment. I was really sore after the second treatment, however, and had a big spike in pain on Tues. even while laying down. I feel like I'm back to square one. Will see Dr. Trujillo today....
